The Standard in Attorney Search and Placement
One thing I liked a lot about Romina was that she was super friendly and really responsive, and in her communications with perspective employers, she was very professional but also cheerful with them, which is kind of nice being the same way I would interact with people. She was a good person to have representing me because I felt like her approach was similar to my own which I really liked. BCG made my search easier in a lot of ways. I was out of the country for starters, and I had no easy way of doing a job search. It was super helpful to work with you guys and Romina to be able to get a job lined up. You guys are the only recruiting firm I have worked with, but I have had a really great experience. It was all positive, and I feel like Romina and I dialoged about my specific circumstances. We talked about what would make the most sense, what to try, and had a couple of conversations along those lines. I felt like I was being personally and individually represented. It worked out really well.
I really appreciated the daily follow up and where things stand email every day. I thought that was really useful and helped me keep on top of things. I found her communication to be very clear so I was never confused by anything she said to me or wrote to me and I also really appreciated that she was willing to talk about the relative drawbacks about some of the places where I had offers. Some headhunters are like all these places are fantastic and you'll love them and it's not true, so I really appreciate honesty when weighing those types of offers and she may had heard things I hadn't heard, so that was really useful as well.Oh my gosh, I had been kind of marginally looking kind of half-heartedly but looking none the less for about 2 years and I had 2 offers within 4 weeks of working with Amanda. This was such a great experience.
Romina was really responsive and really transparent, like I felt like I was talking to a friend rather than being interviewed by a potential employer, it was more like she was like by buddy and she was there to help me and she was really transparent about any questions that I had and that was really refreshing. I think one huge thing that helped make my job search easier was having a very streamlined online system where I could go through on my own time and research the firms and approve or decline and then having the whole actual application and cover letter process taken off my hands saved a ton of time. BCG is definitely the best, and I have probably worked with 6 or 7 over the years.
With respect to Romina specifically, I think she was very responsive, she was very proactive and seems like I got her attention and she was out there looking for opportunities for me. She was in a difficult position in part because I was working with 2 search firms before I touched base with her, so a lot of the obvious firms and opportunities were already being pursued by 2 other firms, so I wasn't expecting much, but I think she did a great job in thinking beyond the obvious opportunities and a little outside of the box, so to speak. I also wanted to mention that I appreciate the resources, brochures and publications by Harrison that provided a lot of insight in terms of interview tips and search strategies and things like that, which I found very valuable and was not something I was getting from the other 2 search firms that I had been working with. You guys handled a lot of the aspects of the logistics of setting up the interviews and getting quick feedback after interviews, definitely scouring the firms and opportunities available. In southern California, one thing that Romina did that I was not doing, was looking a little beyond LA which is where I was and was looking and I ended up in Orange Country which I am very happy about, so that was one thing that she did that definitely made things easier for me and ultimately more productive from the perspective of 1, getting to meet more firms and 2, finding the place I really liked the best. I have worked with a few search firms in the past, when I moved from DC to LA, but I really feel like BCG was really the best go to in terms of picking up a tough situation where I was already working with 2 search firms and thinking what value could they add at that point, also, the resources as I said, a lot of this is of Harrisons opinions and views on things which I talked about with Romina, whether he is right or wrong about these things, it's really good and valuable to have that view in the middle of the search process in terms of what the firms are looking for, what you should be looking for, what you should be thinking about, that to me really puts BCG above others and just based on the spring of this year, I was looking at so many different firms and job postings and it seems like BCG had so much more in terms of job postings and opportunities and contact.
Nadeen, specifically, was my favorite thing about working with BCG. She was very responsive, she knew a lot of useful tips especially for interviewing, and was just a great experience with following up on interviews and always being available to help prepare, it was a very positive experience. Being able to have a huge list of potential opportunities was a huge help and having someone who would submit to those was really useful. BCG is the top of my list of recruiters because of technology and responsiveness and diligence, you were the best I've worked with.
BCG was very responsive and provided me the opportunities that I think were more specific to what I was actually looking for, than other recruiters and you guys had way more contacts and opportunities too. By finding the opportunities that I wouldn't have thought to contact and taking care of the initial reach out and cover letter and setting up the first interview was a huge help and also in negotiating my offer as well. I would say that BCG is the best, I am kindof biased because you helped me get the job.
I would have to say that my favorite thing about working with BCG and Karen was the extent with which she valued my personal preferences. She took a lot of time speaking with me about what I was looking for in my next job, what kind of law I wanted to practice, and what kind of firm I wanted to be in and did a remarkable job of tailoring her search results to those preferences. On a more personal note, she really respected my time and you are respectful of my time too, I just mean she frequently talked to me after business hours because she knew that is when she know I was available. She made my job search exceptionally easier. I didn't, other than carrying a resume to the interview, have to do any document work. I sent all of my documents to her and I didn't even have to find my own connections and determine where my resume was going to be sent, the whole process was handled by BCG. It made it a lot easier and that was a process that would have otherwise been very time consuming. Especially when you are already working as a full time lawyer.
BCG is prompt and responsive and within less than a day of me talking to Romina, she had already gotten me with the firms to target and started doing research for me. The speed was important because I was on a really short time table. I had let her know that, and she jumped right into action and was super responsive and prompt. She reviewed my materials and gave them some thought and quickly got them out there as soon as I got them back to her. She identified a really good opportunity and jumped on it and ended up working out. Working with her took all of the footwork that I would have had to do in terms of researching what firms to target, applying to those firms, which is the big thing, you know filling out all of the many page long combo box drop down to plug in your education and all of that like you do when you apply directly like through a website. I didn't have to do any of that. I just sent her my materials and she took it from there. I have only talked with 1 other recruiter and she was fine as well, but she didn't seem to know the market as well. I feel like with Romina, she had a much better handle on the firms in that location and firms that would be good targets for me. My confidence level with Romina was very important for me.
I really appreciate that BCG kept me up to date on the openings and found those for me and tried to give me a quick summary of what those entailed. It really saved me a lot of time because I didn't have to look at different job boards to keep myself updated because someone else was doing that for me. BCG Attorney search is #1.
My favorite things about BCG Attorney Search is that the staff were very knowledgeable, responsive, friendly, and generally just had a good demeanor. It made it easier to find a job because I had someone that knew the market and that could do the leg work for me. They would send me lists of everything that was coming up and what we were looking for. It made it incredibly easier than doing it on my own. BCG ranks number one when compared with other recruiters that I've worked with.
I really liked the recruiter I worked with and her experience and I appreciated her ability to guide me through the process. I really helps to narrow your search down to jobs that are a fit for what you are looking for. BCG is the best recruiting firm I have ever worked with.
BCG was very responsive. The recruiter I worked with was candid, which was very helpful. BCG also helped me focus my search and also made me aware of opportunities I wouldn't have found otherwise. BCG is the best overall recruiting company I've interacted with. My recruiter was knowledgeable, and she seemed actually invested in furthering my career.
So I worked with Amanda, and she was great. I had a friend who was looking for a firm at the same time as me and I feel like his recruiter was a little pushy with him and we both had specific goals, and wanted to transition in to a field of law that we are not in right now. I feel like Amanda really listened to me in that respect and didn't try to push me toward any firm regardless of whether or not they had an active practice in the area of law that I would like to start practicing in. While my colleague who was working with a different recruiting firm had a very different experience where he felt like he was being pushed toward every and any firm and his recruiter wasn't really listening to what he wanted. I spoke with Amanda and told her what my goals were and provided her with my resume and transcripts, and she kind of just took it from there. She reached out to the all firms that I said okay to. It was very easy and I didn't really have to do anything. I have worked with one other recruiting company at first, and BCG was much better!
I thought that the regular updates really helped and I'd say that Romina was really consistent with her reaching out in terms of pushing things forward. I thought that helped made it more efficient and I thought it was a good way to keep things up to date and move things forward in terms of getting interviews and screeners and even updating my materials. I would say that BCG is at the top of my list for recruiters and certainly number one.
I found my recruiter (Romina) very personable and easy to talk to, and I thought she gave very good advice in terms of navigating the process. She was very communicative whether it was via telephone or text message. I am not easily reached by telephone so being able to text was really important to me. BCG made my job search easier because they were able to find my next job and get all of the behind the scenes stuff done so to speak, the introductions, I guess.
Lorie was very attentive and very much aware of what I wanted, what I didn't want, she was casting a wide net, but she took into account what I was really looking for so I really appreciated that instead of doing the mass resume thing. I like that she was really responsive and one of the things I really appreciated about working with her is that she was very involved, I had issues like when should I send my notice and so on and she basically guided me through the whole thing and is still guiding me so I really appreciated that about working with her. First of all, BCG allowed me to know about opportunities that I wouldn't have known about otherwise, so that presented more opportunities than I would have found on my own. Second of all, Lorie took care of everything in terms of the resume, cover letter and follow up that meant that I didn't have to do anything but approve or disapprove the jobs and that basically took care of the whole thing. BCG is definitely at the very top of my list of recruiters.
I don't have experience working with any other search firms, but Jennifer was just really available to talk, she was helpful and it was a positive experience. I felt comfortable talking to her about any concerns I had and she was very responsive whenever I had questions. I basically didn't even have to do anything in my search.
This was my first time working with a recruiter and Christina was more than I could have hoped for. She was amazing. She took the time to get to know me and what my goals were and what me and my family wanted for my legal career and she tailored her search for firms to meet those needs and she was interested and engaging and responsive, very very very responsive to inquiries I had or emails I sent, really quick turnaround time throughout the interview process called and asked how the interviews went and took an interest in all of that, I couldn't have asked for a better experience with Christina. BCG was awesome too. I really enjoyed the websites interface in particular how it identified the firms I had applied to and kept a status update as to if they were under consideration, pass or interview, so very positive experience all around. [Working with BCG] made it easier in every sense of the word. Number 1, BCG did all of the leg work really, they did the applications, Cristina more or less prepared my cover letter. I wouldn't have had the time in my day to do this. We applied to 25 or 30 firms and that would have taken me alone, several days to do. Cristina also helped me select my writing sample that I was going to use and reviewed my resume so all of that made my job search easier. I would recommend anybody that was looking for a job in the legal profession to use BCG based on my experience. I haven't used other recruiters but my experience was just so good that I would send anybody that cared to ask me, BCG's way.There was one other recruiter that I had reached out to prior to BCG but they actually had told me that they couldn't work with me because I hadn't received my Califormia bar results yet and to come back in 3 months. I was a bit dejected by that call and then Christina said let's get going and I ended up getting a job before bar results even came out. It was something the other recruiter dropped the ball on and BCG clearly didn't.
Karen was very responsive and had great information and really listened to what I was looking for. My job search was made much easier and it went really fast, about 3 weeks and I was placed.
I really appreciated Jessica's responsiveness and how quickly she got me interviews and that I was able to get a job very quickly. She was easy to communicate with and was always available. The responsiveness of a recruiter makes a big difference. Other recruiters are slow to get back with you or take forever to provide new law firms so working with BCG made it very quick. I have only worked with one other recruiting company and you guys are certainly better than them.
